I have a new life goal and that is to race a couple of laps around the Goodwood Circuit in something old and fast. After, of course, I get better at driving. And racing. And gain more courage. Like, a ton more courage.

The 2017 Goodwood Revival is over, but a new episode of Chris Harris Drives, uploaded to the Top Gear website, shows him whipping a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM around the famed circuit during one of the greatest weekends in the British year.

The car sounds phenomenal, and, after seeing the onboard footage, I understand now more than ever how risky it is to have those multimillion-dollar race cars face off against each other. Doesn’t mean it shouldn’t happen, though.

This video also includes footage that puts the rumors of Harris causing the Ferrari 250 GTO crash to rest.

For now, the video lives on Top Gear’s website, but we’ll be keeping tabs for when it gets uploaded to YouTube. You should still check it out, though.

I have to wonder what it feels like to crash a $50 million car. Like... it might feel kind of good, if it’s your car.

Kind of the way that somebody would buy a Van Gogh painting, and then light it on fire.
